The Kryptonite PC, finally completely after many years of pondering. Paul here: This is my personal computer, it has been with me for many years, though I'm sad to say, I do not possess any pictures of the first time I built it. Before Bandi Tech LLC was made, this PC resided in my room when I lived in my mom's house. Version 1.0 didn't have half of the parts it currently has, but it was a very good computer.
It was in the very PC that I started Bandi Tech, using it as a backup for my data, its multiple drives serving as other OS boot drives, experimentation took hold on this machine. More and more poured in and out of this PC thanks to those early investments, Bandi Tech's Knowledge Base is vast and it put to use everyday.
So on the Bandi Tech history book, the Kryptonite is mayor player, now with version 2.5 its now even more prepared for service our clientele. Get ready for version 3.0, coming soon.

Hints for building a similar PC:
Buy very good 80mm fans, the limited cooling in the PC force you not to purchase high TDP parts.
As with almost all acrylic cases, install everything inside the case except: motherboard, cpu, vga and ram and make sure to tuck in all the cables under the motherboard before placing it in.
Don't buy just 100GBs for you main hard drive, we've had to add the PCI-e 4x 50GB drive to coupe with the lack of space, use 250GB and above.
If I work with the Kryptonite all day, wouldn't that make me Lex Luthor? Brb, I'll need to shave my head.
